Heart Bursting

"1 My heart bursts its banks, spilling beauty and goodness.
I pour it out in a poem to the king,
shaping the river into words."
Psalm 45:1 MSG

Do you remember the last time that your heart was so excited that it felt like it would burst it's banks? Was it when you meet your spouse? When you had your first child? That promotion? That dream car?

How does it compare to the moment when you received the truth that the King of Kings wanted to have you in His Family forever and ever? That moment when you truly and completely gave your heart, mind and spirit over to Him? Was there so much love that you just couldn't contain it inside of you? Maybe you wanted to shout, sing, dance or write about the excitement that your soul was experiencing.

Sometimes that moment--that wonderful, life-changing moment--gets dim as time goes by. Realities of life can come and snare some of the bursting, excitement away. Does it have to? No! Please fight for those moments. Your God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Who and what changes is us, you. It's us that allows life to draw us away from that first love excitement and fills it with the distractions of the world.

Here is a great question to ponder on for a moment--Can you say that your heart and tongue are in unison, as you meditate upon your King, the God whose throne is forever and ever?

"The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, and adds learning to his lips." Proverbs 16:23 NKJV
